Optimal operation and control of fluidized bed membrane reactors for steam methane reforming

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This work presents the optimal operation and control of a Fluidized Bed Membrane Reactor (FBMR) for Steam Methane Reforming (SMR). First, a nonlinear distributed parameter dynamic model is developed. Next, the optimal operation of the system is studied by solving a dynamic optimization problem that maximizes the conversion and separation in the reactor. Based on the optimization result, reduced order linear models are developed and used in the design of conventional and model based controllers. The performance of these controllers are tested considering the variation in the inlet concentration of the feed to the reactor and the initial conditions.
